1 Coaching Canadian Six-a-Side Football Coaching Curriculum By Brian Guebert 2008, 2011, 2015 Intended For: Saskatoon Minor Football The Canadian Football League Football Canada & Football Saskatchewan

2 Introduction With a growing demand for football it is increasingly important that the game itself is appropriate for the players, coaches, and communities. Six-a-side football teams generally have players on a roster. With a smaller roster size, creating a football team may not be as daunting when taking into account costs, the number of coaches needed, and travel expenses. Six-a-side tackle football also offers a distinct advantage to grassroots football development. The lower number of players allows more opportunities for players to touch the ball and ultimately be more directly involved in the game. A smaller field also allows for a better opportunity for athletes to showcase their abilities on a field that is more appropriate for the age, size, and skill of the players playing. Allowing players to become more involved in the game is developmentally advantageous, especially at younger ages where children have yet to reach their full physical and cognitive development. Coaching six-a-side football at any age places emphasis on skill generalization as opposed to skill specialization. With skill generalization as the focus of six-a-side football players will be equipped with knowledge and skill set to play several positions which can be particularly beneficial as the players physically develop; the position one plays at age 9 may not be the position he/she plays at age 16 simply because his/her body type has changed so drastically throughout puberty. Fewer players on the field also offer the distinct cognitive advantage for younger children because there is more emphasis on skill and less on scheme or strategy.

3 Benefits Smaller playing surface which is more suitable to the size of the participants. Greater opportunity to be involved in the play (i.e. touching the ball on offence or making the tackle on defence) Fewer players on the field there allows for less external distractions It becomes easier to read and react to a play facilitating the cognitive response of the athlete Six-a-side football also offers an advantage to coaches creating a positive psychosocial environment because there are fewer players on the team it allows the head coach a greater opportunity for one on one interaction with the players where he/she can model positive behaviours and techniques for the youth to internalize. Aim The aim of the six-a-side football curriculum is participation in the game and development of football skills amongst youth in a success based environment by upholding the following values of coaching in sport. Sport is considered an integral part of the holistic development of youth. Football should offer a positive experience where athletes can apply what they have learned to sport and what they have learned in sport to life. Players are encouraged towards an active healthy lifestyle, through the promotion of skill development and participation. The curriculum of six-aside football must be structured for success in order for athletes to appreciate and internalize an active healthy lifestyle. To make available technical knowledge, directly or indirectly related to football and develop assessment techniques for evaluating the skill and knowledge within the total program.

4 Goals The goals of the six-a-side football curriculum are focused on the development of youth within the sport of football. Youth participation in football at a variety of positions. Whole player development through learning a variety of skills at a variety of positions. Teach the necessary movement and football skills to offer participants a solid foundation which to build upon their skills. Basic skill concepts are taught that are easily transferable to other positions. o Staying Low o Staying Square o Moving Feet o Keeping an athletic base Coaching and Official development through increased opportunities to participate. Teaching football literacy so participants understand the language of football to better understand the game and expectations at each position.

5 Six-a-side Football Rules 1. Any place in the Canadian Amateur Football Rule Book where the term 12 PLAYERS is used, substitute the term 6 PLAYERS. 2. THE PLAYING FIELD: The field shall be 35 yards long (towards a common goal line) and 40 yards wide. End zones shall be 10 yards to 20 yards deep. 3. Hash marks shall be located 13 yards from the side lines. If the natural boundary of the field is less than 10 yards behind the goal lines, such boundary shall be the DEAD LINE. 4. The length of the game shall be two 30 minute straight time halves with 3 plays following the expiration of time. 5. At the instant the ball is put into play, at least 3 players of the offensive team must be stationary on the line of scrimmage. 6. The centre is an eligible pass receiver if he lines up on the end of the line of scrimmage and is wearing an eligible receiver's number. Any other player on the line, not occupying the outside position is an ineligible receiver. 7. The convert after a touchdown in 6-man football will be worth (2) points, if kicked, and that a convert that involves running or passing the ball into the end zone is worth one (1) point.

6 Rationale for Skill Generalization Youth should not feel pressured into deciding the sport of their choice at ages prior to full development. There should be encouragement for developing youth to participate in a variety of sports where interaction and generalization, over specialization, is stressed so that players will be versed in many skills and can make the necessary changes to skill development with their own body development. Maximal time should be dedicated to participation in youth sport rather than competition, as participants should spend their time learning and perfecting basic skills in the sport of football. Approach for Technical Skill Development The emphasis on technical development at the grassroots level of football is an essential step in the development of young football players. The technical development of a football player is tightly tied to the physical development because once one has the physical ability to achieve the technical goals the player will experience success through his/her application of the technical skills used combined with his/her physical athletic ability. Again, if one is highly developed technically but lacks the physical ability to carry out the skills within competition, both the player and the coach must spend more time dedicated to the development of physical abilities. The technical development is primarily focused on the development of individual skills. For example, it could be argued that all players should learn skills of running, tackling, and blocking, however there are also position specific skills such as: a quarterback must develop the skills of a drop back, throwing progression, and reading of defences. Every individuals experience is unique and must be treated as so, therefore, a coach must teach basic skills to the entire group and continually add as the learner progresses. The progression of the learner can be planned for but must also account for an adaptive dimension to simplify for or challenge individuals.

7 Season Planning An effective program is a planned program. The start of a regular season usually leads to some planning. Coaches should outline what they expect from his/her players for each week of the season. Planning will also include placing players where they have the best opportunity for success on the field and enjoyment of the game. 1) Teach the fundamentals every week: Running, Covering, Blocking, Tackling, and Catching/Carrying. 2) Implement Plays (Progress for Basic to Complex): Teach the basics of Offense and Defence to All Players: a. Offensive Holes and Defensive Gaps b. The Language of Play-Calling c. Proper Huddle Formations d. Alignments, Assignments, and Techniques 3) Slot Players into Positions that best suit their abilities: Create a Depth Chart

8 Team Depth Chart OFFENCE QB Player #7 TB FB Player #23 Player #34 End Ctr Rec Player #88 Player #64 Player #33 DEFENCE 2-3 Rush Tackle Player #45 Player #75 SLB MLB WLB Player #6 Player #11 Player #44 Safety Player #19 4) Create a Team Calendar of When you first team meeting will be. Account for athletes participating in other sports so athletes have an opportunity to cross-train during the football season. In the calendar be sure to include any upcoming football camps that players may be interested or encouraged to attend. Continue to add to the calendar as dates become finalized for games, championships, and practices.

9 Weekly Planning In all sport players embrace consistency and continuity when it comes to practicing and game times. If expectations are clearly explained at the beginning of the season it will be easier to have players buy into the philosophy of the program. In amateur football it is usually the norm to practice 3 times for every game. The following is an example of how a coach may place his/her practice emphasis throughout the week. Fitness Training Individual Work (On Own Time) Strategy (Main Focus) 1 None Light Distance Run Rest 2 Strength Moderate Strength activities Individual Technical Improvement 3 Endurance Active Rest O/D Team Improvement 4 Speed Light Strength Activities O/D Timing 5 Captains Lead Fitness (Fun!) Rest Review Game Day Game Day Cool Down Post Game Having Fun and Competing 0 None Active Rest Rest

10 Practice Planning Practice planning is essential to get the most out of players and the most out of the practice. The amount of time you spend on particular parts of practice will vary throughout the season. For example, at the beginning of the season more time will be spent of developing individual skill and one on one skill. As the season progresses there will be less time spent on individual aspects and more time given to team development as individual skills will be incorporated into team situations. In order to get the most out of your practice time ensure that transitions are crisp and players are expected to hustle around the field so no time is lost.
